I was out last night after a wee sika stag, they are still in season here, but really I wasn't taking it too seriously. At about 1830 I had my little crusader stove going and had just poured a cup of tea into my mug when I noticed that, despite the wind, there were two deer on the forest ride behind me.
There was a bit of messing about but in the end I managed to get the rifle and sticks out of the car and get the rifle loaded and, to my surprise, the deer were still feeding quietly in the ride. After watching for a while I started to become convinced that I had two hinds and, of course, they were swapping positions on a regular basis and moving in and out of sight. After a little while longer my opinion on the matter changed and I concluded that I had a hind and a wee stag. Ideal I thought.
It was at this point that the wee stag chose to stand in front of the hind and so no shot was possible however in due course he walked clear of the hind and I sent him the good news. Unusually for a chest shot sika he went straight down and so I returned to drink my tea before I went and picked him up.
I've never shot a deer while drinking tea before but I can certainly recommend it and it amused me greatly.
